Extended tummy tuck and lipo of flanks post op 2 weeks tomorrow
Hey everyone. I'm a newbie to the group and recovery. I had an Extended Tummy Tuck and lipo of the flanks on May 11th. Recovery is getting easier and easier and am shocked that it has only been two weeks but also wish I would start seeing some results more then what I am seeing.
I can not get anything pre op on and I am 2.2 lbs less then day of surgery(I really thought I would see a bigger change). Guess that the newbie coming out. When I came home from hospital few days later I was 6 lbs less but granted I was sick as a dog LOL.
Pain wise is pretty much non existant. I get stiff in the morning and that is even getting easier and easier. I was on the go from 8 am till 2pm today and came home and slept with my legs up because my Binder was really really tight and my legs hurt. Iv developed a heat rash but nothing that cant be fixed.
My biggest thing though is on my hips towards I have some indents from the binder and below the indent is hard lumps. They told me to make sure the binder was straight and smooth at all times which it is but when I sleep or sit due to my butt it bunches right there. I am not sure how to control that when I am sleeping LOL. I talked to the nurse today and she told me to massage that area. Have any of you had this?? or similar and when should I start to see any type of results when the binder is off??????I go next week for my 3 week post op not sure what he will do then my inscion is nice and closed most of teh scabbing is off just got the white dried scabbing on it now.
